meteor but that slow mover over chicago was part of a publicity stunt for an energy drink. those are just some of the top stories on this wednesday, november 5th. all right. we need to begin, of course, stinging defeat for the democrats as republicans reign on capitol hill taking back the senate and retaining control of the house. >> president obama invited congressional members from both parties to the white house. >> good morning. this was a huge night for republicans. they needed six seats to take control of the senate and so far they have seven. that number could grow. this is a major shift here on capitol hill. republican majorities in the house and now the senate. and it was, of course, a big night for that party but also democrats had a very rough night. it was a resounding defeat. and voters said they are not happy with the direction the
nation is heading in. republicans were hoping for a wave election. they may have gotten a tsunami. it was a huge night for the gop. they needed six seats to take control of the senate, and they got that and then some. republican challengers ousted democratic incumbents in colorado, north carolina and arkansas. >> i'm humbled by your trust and confidence. >> reporter: and in four states with open races due to democratic retirements, four republican wins. >> thanks to all of you. we are heading to washington. and we are going to make them squeal! >> reporter: kentucky senator mitch mcconnell is now poised to be the new senate majority leader. >> it's time to turn this country around! >> reporter: it was a bad night all around for democrats. they failed to beat vulnerable incumbent governors in wisconsin, michigan and florida.
in the senate races where they were playing offense, they lost. they also lost senate seats in states that were critical to president obama's own political history. even the incumbent democratic governor in his home state of illinois went down. pessimism ran deep this year. exit polling found that 55% of voters said the nation is on the wrong track, 12 points more negative than two years ago. and a lot of the blame is aimed at the white house. president obama's job approval ratings are at career lows. and the exit polls found that 54% of voters disapprove of the job he's doing. and president obama is already looking ahead. he's invited congressional leaders from both parties to sit don with him at the white house on friday to talk about a path forward and how they can work together after this very, very decisive election day. t.j., reena?
>> a lot of people hoping for that. we saw many high-profile campaigners. what was the payoff? >> it was not good for democrats. president obama, the first lady michelle obama, bill and hillary clinton were all out there on the campaign trail. all of them had far more losses than wins. that's not surprising when you look at the national map and just how badly democrats did across the nation. of course, those high-profile democrats would be stumping for the high-profile democrats. but good news for the republicans, jeb bush and chris christie. they saw a lot of big wins for their candidates. where this could pay off is in the next couple of months into 2016. they could call in a lot of favors in some very important battleground states. >> you wouldn't get through this without mentioning 2016. karen travers live from capitol hill. thank you so much. joining us with her insights is our deputy political director. >> shushannah walshe here.
you've been covering everything we saw overnight. your reaction because we thought we'd have a later night than we're having. >> although it is a late night or early morning it is all wrapped up. we thought maybe this would go on for days or even weeks. and it will. louisiana will still go to a run-off, but the republicans will take the senate. it happened earlier this evening. you saw joni ernst. she was the last senate candidate to be a switch, and so she'll have that under her belt as being the one that was the last to take the senate. and it was a huge night for republicans. and whether democrats want to admit that it was a wave or not, it was a huge night. a huge win for them and a terrible night for the democrats. >> if you are president obama, what do you do? take an alka-seltzer and go back to bed? >> sleep in maybe. it means either nothing is going to get done in congress or one
side or both sides will have to compromise. we spoke about this last night the likelihood of compromise. maybe that's just optimistic. but the republicans are coming in with a wave and with what they are going to call a mandate. so somebody is going to have to compromise to get anything done. >> a mandate for what exactly? some were already cautioning tonight. democratic strategists. don't take this as a mandate. they're upset, angry and some of the exit polling showed just that. >> that's a good point. a mandate for what? a lot of these candidates shied away from the issues and talking about exactly what they want to do. instead we heard people running against president obama, lumping their candidate with president obama. you're right. we don't know a lot about some of these issues. we'll find out. >> going back to president obama, d.c. passed legalization of marijuana. >> not all over the country, medical marijuana in florida did not pass, but what you were
saying earlier, t.j. is, whether it was a mandate or waiver, voters were in a sour mood today. >> all right. shushannah walshe, thanks for staying up all night with us. and our coverage of the midterm vote does not end here. shushannah walshe is here all morning long and look for more reaction to the election later on "america this morning" and "good morning america." were you aware you're here all morning long? we'll see you again shortly. our coverage of the election will not stop. we'll continue to keep you updated. another update we want to bring you on a story we've been following here. this is out of philadelphia where police have released new surveillance video. this in connection with a kidnapping of a young nurse. they say this man had just used the victim's atm card at a bank. he was seen in a convenience store in maryland 75 miles south of florida. the family says an obsessive former boyfriend of carlesha
freeland-gaither lived in maryland. now they are pleading for her return. >> she don't need to go through this. she has a job, a family, brothers and sisters. >> a reward in this case has now grown to about $50,000. and the hearing at which ray rice will appeal his indefinite suspension from the nfl gets under way today. rice will demand his immediate reinstatement to the league. the elevator video showing him punching his then-fiance became public. nfl commissioner roger goodell is still scheduled to testify. there have been no significant negotiations aimed at allowing him to avoid giving that testimony. and suspended minnesota vikings star adrian peterson is avoiding jail by striking a plea deal in his child abuse case. teammates say he'd be welcomed back in the vikings locker room. as john ehrlichman reports, getting peterson back on the field won't be that easy. >> reporter: adrian peterson was back at the montgomery county
courthouse in texas tuesday, this time pleading no contest to misdemeanor reckless assault. >> how do you plead? >> reporter: peterson an all-pro running back had been charged with disciplining his 4-year-old son with a tree branch. so severely, the wounds opened his skin. had he gone to trial, he could have faced jail time. with this plea deal, instead he'll receive probation, a maximum $4,000 fine and 80 hours of community service. >> i love my son more than anyone of you could even imagine. and i'm looking forward to and i'm anxious to repair my relationship with my child. >> reporter: for peterson's minnesota vikings teammates the plea deal was welcome news. >> you'd be crazy not to welcome him back into that locker room. >> reporter: a decision on him returning to the field lies in
the hands of nfl commissioner roger goodell. peterson's case is one in a string of players accused of domestic violence putting pressure on the league to properly address the issue. there will be no travel restrictions but he will be required to take parenting classes. t.j., reena? >> thanks, john ehrlichman there. most of the state of texas is under flood warnings and watches. tropical storm vance is weakening in the pacific but still packing a strong punch. it's picking up tropical moisture and tracking northeast toward mexico and eventually texas. it's expected to dump up to a foot of rain in its path. officials in austin are getting the emergency operations center ready. they are monitoring the radar and the roads. now here's a look at the rest of the nation's weather. that band of heavy rain covering much of texas extends up through south and the ohio valley into the northeast. showers also over the upper midwest and great lakes as well as the pacific northwest. dry and breezy for most of the

and she was that last senate win, the last six -- number six to switch control over to republicans. >> senate majority leader mitch mcconnell. what kind of senate and congress are we looking at? >> it's more than likely he'll be the majority leader after beating alison lundergan grimes. there was talk maybe he'd be -- if somebody else would come up and try to be majority leader like ted cruz. now this evening, ted cruz said under no circumstances will he vie for that position against mcconnell. so it's more than likely we'll see a senate majority leader. this has really been a dream of his for his whole life. >> and it feels like today could be the first unofficial start of the 2016 campaign. >> the unofficial start, wednesday. >> what can we learn from the
exit polling so far about potential candidates? >> before the exit polling we have our own new abc polling that came out on tuesday. and it shows that 80% of democrats say that hillary clinton would make a good president. that sounds like very high numbers, which it is. of course, 2016 polls this early, a lot of it is name recognition, right? and there aren't really other democrats like on the republican side where there are so many potential candidates. democrat side you don't see that. that could be why you see that really high number. amongst the republican candidates you're seeing jeb bush leading, then chris christie, rand paul and rick perry. now why those numbers? it's likely because also they have higher name recognition. with chris christie, he's also, besides being the governor of new jersey, he's also the chairman of the rga, the republican governors
association. he had a great night tonight. a lot of big wins. big wins in some blue states like in massachusetts and maryland. >> okay. abc's political deputy director shushannah walshe. we'll see you in our next half hour. kids making parents sick. jokingly calling them petri dishes. and it's for a good reason. >> top four illnesses parents should protect themselves from. that's next on "world news now." >> announcer: "world news now" continues after this from our abc stations. connection to nature is a right that the trust for public land is fighting to preserve. from boulevards to ball fields and ponds to playgrounds, together we have saved over 3 million acres of land.
